Chicago, June 25
Todays meeting on the campus of the Oriental Institute of Far East Studies at the University of Chicago drew a much larger crowd than the first. A Cairo University attendee, speaking again on the condition of anonymity revealed to us by phone that more new information was presented by the Racine, Wisconsin police representatives to the attentive assemblage.
Excavation done in the backyard of Dr. Ritner’s home in Racine revealed that the three Hydrogen tanks discovered earlier were connected together to a single pipe which ran to the rear of Ritner’s property and into an adjoining vacant field (also owned by Ritner) to a large, seemingly abandoned windowless concrete block building. Inside were multiple, massive electric generators, a multi-valve manifold system from the hydrogen tanks, workbenches and tools and a large cryostatic unit which was operating and maintaining a fixed temperature of -220° C. The rest of the building was empty except for 8 tie-down clamps embedded into the floor. A slide show was shown of this new discovery and much speculation discussed as to it’s usage.
At this point, a senior agent of Egyptian FIN, identified as Muat-al-Ashkakut, stepped to the dais and told all present that his agency was now taking over all aspects of this excavation. The American HSA and CIA were giving full cooperation to the FIN and assisting in every facet of this invesigation. Objections from the scientific members present were dismissed as useless protests. The scientific community was to remain involved in every aspect of the recovery of items from the tomb at Abydos, but all information of discovery would henceforth be announced by the FIN after it had reviewed their conclusions and agreed it should be made public.
“This discovery of the Tomb at Abydos has produced 6 senseless deaths that we know of; by an unknown weapon that came from that tomb. Further exploration has revealed other objects of unknown origin are still inside the tomb. Who knows what else may be uncovered that will have disasterous results if they are moved? It is within our power to take over this whole operation and we intend to do so immediately. Safely is paramount here. We do not want anymore accidents. Efforts to capture Dr. Ritner or his imposter will be redoubled by our allies here in the United States. We need many more answers before we proceed with this excavation. This is not just another tomb out in the desert, gentlemen, and we cannot treat it as such. This is a hard look into another world and we know nothing of this world.”
“Are there any questions?”
